A sister to the late UNIBEN student, Uwa Omozuwa who was raped and murdered in a church in Benin, has alleged that officers of the Police force demanded for mobility money to investigate the case.
She made the statement while speaking with newsmen in Benin, Edo state.
According to her, the policemen said Uwa’s father didn’t visit the police station when in actual fact, he consistently paid them a visit so they can investigate the death of his daughter.
She aired her disappointment with the Nigerian police after revealing that the policemen said “her sister is not the first to be raped” and as such, they shouldn’t bother the police. She went on to reveal how they asked for “mobility money” to carry out the investigation of Uwa’s death.
As seen in the video currently serving rounds, Uwa’s sister made these allegations to pressmen in the presence of other police officers which certainly means she wouldn’t lie of such things.
Her statements has since angered a lot of Nigerians who are displeased with the corruption that seems to be ever growing in the Nigerian police force.
The Police however stated earlier today that they have arrested a suspect, even as investigation into the rape/murder continues.
